Serving: 12 oz bottle (stamped "102513") poured into a 5.5 oz Libbey Embassy snifter.

Appearance: Very dark brown with reddish hue. Modest head of khaki foam.

Smell: Toffee, vanilla, some dark fruit and alcohol.

Taste: Similar to the nose, caramel, vanilla, unsweetened chocolate, slightly smoky malt with an overall restrained sweetness. Alcohol comes through strongly with a bit of burn.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and smooth feel, though almost light relative to its taste.

Overall: A boozy, warming sipper.

I love the style and Saint Arnolds did a great job. Perfect amount of sweetness.
